falsa lectio

by Dmitri Kourliandski



prePositions, FL [falsa lectio] #2 and Voice-off are composed in Berlin in 2008. prePositions and Voice-off are united by the treatment of the instrument and the voice as a complex composite organisms: these are rather ensemble pieces than the solo ones. Lips, teeth, tongue, throat, vocal chords, fingers, strings (split in four sections), violin body elements – all is imagined as separate instruments (wind, percussion, string) forming an active dialogue, having separate parts, notated on separate staves in the score.

Voice-off, as well as FL [falsa lectio] #2, also represent a trip inside the interpreter. The physiology of the voice, articulation and breath apparatuses serve as a material of these pieces (the flute body just builds up an additional filter through which the apparatuses work). The pieces demand extreme concentration and physical efforts. In a concert situation they usually last almost twice shorter than on these recordings. A musician’s physical tension peeps out the sound surface and becomes one of the material’s layers of the pieces.

Composed in 2010 Shiver for accordion has a more traditional nature. The material is based on the attentive listening into the long-lasting sounds/states and on the register and distance changes of the listening. Within the listening process a new unexpected contrast material is born, which is in fact just a formal run over the accordion chord buttons. This formal gesture reminds of a splash on a still water surface or of an opening the door into a parallel musical dimension… The door closes shortly.

The tracks are recorded in a studio with maximally close microphones. Thus we tried to gain the effect of entering the instrument, entering the sound anatomy. This effect permitted us to open up lots of hidden noises which are usually swallowed down by the concert hall acoustics. While listening with headphones this sound physiology comes ahead. While listening with the loudspeakers hides these details in a natural acoustics of the room, approaching to the concert sound.
